Two young Dutch producers team up for this stunning release on Manchester's Inner City Records

When we tell you that Prunk and Bas Roos cite the likes of Moodymann, Ian Pooley, Kerri Chandler and Dixon as influences, you should already have a pretty good idea what to expect here!

And indeed, deep, groovy house music in the traditional mould is the order of the day throughout this EP's three tracks. Feeling High tops rock-solid 4/4s and garage-y keys with a jazz-style female 'I'm feeling high' vocal. Future Beach opens with the sounds of waves, seagulls and mournful trumpet, slowly building into a laidback house throbber built for warm-up play. And then finally there's What I Do itself, an unhurried, sonically rich groove that'll no doubt sound even better as night inexorably turns into morning.

Inner City Records are only six releases old, but they haven't put a step wrong so far - if 'proper house' (their description) is your bag, you so need this.
